Miriam College welcomed the third week of November with an exciting film viewing event catered by the Communication Society along with MCinema, Applied Arts Society, Psychology Guild, MC UNESCO, MC Environmental Planning Organization, and Leisure and Event Management. Independent films are finely exceptional due to their realistic content and cinematography; this was confirmed over again by the rerun of the award-winning Pamilya Ordinaryo directed by Mr. Eduardo Roy, Jr. in its campus tour last November 14 at the Marian Auditorium.
Pamilya Ordinaryo focuses on the life of a teenage couple who resided on the sidewalks of the busy streets in Manila. It depicts the pair’s already hard life that became much harder as their child got stolen and from which they encountered several forms of abuse.
An open forum with its director, Mr. Eduardo Roy Jr., followed the screening of the film that garnered a set of applause from the students. One of their main takeaways is that social classes and status quo may hurdle the equality that is actually everyone’s birthright and therefore deserve.
